News: Queen Abdicates

20th November 1988: The Queen abdicated following a series of meetings with Government officials including Prime Minister Cranwell rising out of the BBC siege and General's Mutiny. The involvement of the Royal Family in the opposition to the Cranwell government led to making the Queen's position untenable in the United Kingdom. Following the abdication she flies immediately to Washington D.C. where she met outgoing President Reagan.


  1. If the Queen abdicates doesn't the Prince of Wales become King...and if so isn't a little difficult to do so from America?

  2. We'll get to that bit VERY soon...
